Abstract

Male and female nurses, how does the care they provide differ? While male and female nurses recognise the influence of their gender on their professional practices, these differences correspond to existing cultural representations. They can be lessened through experience and practices become enriched with new ways of providing care. Is care more a female domain? Do the men who join this profession have different ways of providing care than women? This article offers an ethnological approach through a research master's thesis.
